Travel light stand, my 2023 choice!
I have been using NEEWER Carbon Light Stand for over the year, and I love it!
It is a very compact design and can be put in my carry-on suitcase, after folding it has only 20″, 51cm, and 2lb, 900g, which makes it easy to use when you travel or simply when you pack on the job and you want to be able to fit things in you small suitcase or even use side pocket of your backpack.
I usually use it with a 26″ Octagonal Softbox (only 640g) which gives me a perfect set for headshots, weddings, or product photography.
You can extend it up to 86.5″, 220cm which basically covers all needs of most photographers, the only downside I found is that you need to use sandbags if it is windy, because it is so light, with a softbox on it it can easily fall. I prefer to have light equipment so it is not a big deal for me but keep it in mind when you are going to pack this stand for your next shoot.
